It happens all too often.
Zack Kassian scores a goal, then it's disallowed or called back.
The Oilers energizer encountered it again versus the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday.
"By the time he's all said and done, they're going to have another column of 'disallowed goals' and 'goals' and I think he'll have a higher total on the other side," Oilers Head Coach Todd McLellan said.
Whether contributing on the scoresheet or not, No. 44 has made his mark in many ways on this budding Oilers squad.
"Even if he's not scoring, he's a big part of our team," McLellan continued. "He provides us energy; he's become a real good penalty killer. Does a lot of good things on the bench. You don't necessarily see him or cheer for him in those situations but he's an important guy to our chemistry."
